The Bells of Christmas

Once upon a time, before cheese logs and 3G networks, can you remember eagerly anticipating the holidays? In the book The Bells of Christmas, award-winning author Virginia Hamilton tells the story of twelve-year-old Jason Bell as he waits impatiently for his visiting relatives to arrive in 1890 near the historic National Road in Ohio. Jason's Christmas Eve sky is Smurf-blue with no hint of snow--- and fair weather is the worst when your favorite cousin is hoping for a sleigh ride...But the holidays often bring wonderful surprises for everyone.

Check the availability of The Bells of Christmas at your neighborhood library. See the wooden sculpture that was fashioned after the book cover at King Library. Read this story to your children and feel the warm lantern light of home.
Happy Holidays.
